Favorite drummers - Adam - 02-10-2013

This forum needs a thread, and i couldn't think of anything else.

Who's your favorite? post vids and stuff

Mike Portnoy:

- Keith Moon (The Who)
- Neil Peart (Rush), even though I was never a huge Rush fan.
- Rick Allen (Def Leppard)
- Dave Grohl (Nirvana), even though I haven't listened to Nirvana in years. He definitely is a talented dude though.
- Bobby Blotzer (RATT)
- Matt Sorum/Steven Adler (The Cult (only Matt), Guns N Roses)
- Mitch Mitchell (Jimi Hendrix Experience)
- Tommy Lee (Motley Crue)
- Buddy Rich

Dude, I could be here all day.

Jimmy Chamberlin from the Smashing Pumpkins

Dave Grohl's a pretty coo' drummer.

I feel bad because I didn't even know most of these names prior to this. These are just people that constantly impress me.

Steve Clifford - Circa Survive
Chris Collis - This Town Needs Guns
Erin Tate - Minus The Bear
Ben Koller - Converge
Matt Cameron - Soundgarden
Kashikura Takashi - Toe

I also really love the guy from Maps and Atlases but I'm not really big on the band.

RE: Favorite drummers - Mr Maps - 04-14-2013

I second Chris Collis.

RE: Favorite drummers - Grungie - 04-14-2013

Let's not forget Abe Cunningham from the Deftones

RE: Favorite drummers - BobSacamano - 04-14-2013

I was considering adding him. He definitely has his own style and some kickass performances.
